Easter time!

Erica, Landon, and Hawkins came in for Spring Break. We were very happy to see them! Erica brought Carter's present from she and Kels. He loved it of course! It's a giant Nerf gun! We wish Kels, Joe, and Linc could have made it, but Kelsie is coaching softball this year. They had a game Monday. Who scheduled that? It makes no sense.
That is the face of a happy kid!
Easter egg dyeing time! We made some masterpieces as usual.
3 happy kids!
Hawkins made some lovely eggs. Most of them he dropped first! He also dyed his hands green so that he looked like the Hulk. He makes me laugh!
Lando and Papa have always been best buds.
A cute picture of Grandma and Carterman (in one of his cool new shirts. Thanks Grandma and Grandpa Barsness!)
Erica and her big boy.
Teague was especially proud of his bright red egg. It is his favorite color now, and it was very red!
He wanted two pictures of it!
Abbey and Avery having fun together. I feel bad that I didn't get any pictures of Jordan and Kyle. They were participating I promise. Sorry!
The finished products! We had many lovely colors, wax crayon designs, emoji decorations, pirates, princesses, and glitter galore!
A happy fella on Easter morning! The Easter bunny brought Teague a cool Scarecrow Lego Batman set.
Avers had some colored pencils she thought were really cool and a cool coloring book to use them on.
Carterman got a Donkey Kong game for his new DS.
Hawkins looked like a model here. The "fresh diaper" look is so in right now.
Grandma and Grandpa spoiled us all as usual. These guys loved looking through their baskets.
Avers loved hers too - lots of candy, chalk, toys, bubbles, and other fun stuff.
It's like Christmas in April.
Hawkins went straight for the candy!
It had been pretty miserable up until Sunday. Luckily the sun was out! They went outside for some bubble fun before the Easter Egg hunt began. I like Ave's swirly sweater in this picture!
Teague wanted to wear his "Easter hat" again this year. I'm so glad he did. I love it!
I like Carter's face here. He was catching some bubbles from Landon.
4 crazy cool kids. The boys looked very handsome in their jeans.
Time to find some Easter eggs. Teague was ready!
Hawkins was ready for more candy! He wore one of Kyle's LSU hats and looked so cute in it!
My handsome big boy on the hunt!
Miss Boo looked gorgeous as always.
Lando looking dapper in his Easter shirt. Grandma always has them looking great on Easter. This year was no exception!
Papa enjoying watching the kids find the 62 eggs he hid around the front and back yard.
Time to open the eggs. I knew Dad had filled them with random things again this year. Besides the money and candy, there is always some weirdness. I got some great reaction shots! Here is Ave finding some quinoa and broccoli in her egg!
This picture makes me laugh every time I look at it. Landon found a Vienna sausage! Gross! We put those in Dad's stocking at Christmas time. He informed us later that he doesn't like them. I had no idea there was any type of meat he didn't like. I guess we will go with Spam next year. Anyway, Duke seemed to enjoy the sausage! There was also bacon, chicken wings, almonds, blueberries, and carrots in some of the eggs. The kids are always in for a surprise! Yum!
Hawkins was pretty happy with what he found. He looks so cute in his shirt/hat combo here!
Austin and Liam came over for the hunt. We had to get a cute cousins picture!
These two always get along splendidly. They are only 8 months apart.
Two cute sisters looking very springy!
I tried to get one good picture of my three all dressed up.
Girl cousins picture - we were missing a bunch of you: Kelsie, Terri, Nicole (had to work), and Kathi. Someday we can all get together hopefully!
We went down to C St Park a little later in the day to run off some of the mass quantities of food we ate! The swings are always a good way to burn off some energy/calories!
Kyle pitched to Carter, Avery, and Landon for quite awhile. They all had some very nice swings. I was impressed! We had a wonderful Easter. Hope everyone else did also.
